Surely you must be in extreme discomfort/fatigue riding for 600 KM non stop?

That's like 5+hours, I'd be praying for a break at that point

Me too. The OP must be young still. My arthritic bones want a break after about 100 miles, plus I'd also need to pee.

It's what, maybe 2% stopped for fueling out of the 100% of the ride? Depending on where one is riding the time stopped for red lights, trains, etc. is way more than that.

Fueling is a two edged sword........................

Fuel stops - my view - may be viewed as local or long distance.

I find local fueling fun..........

A well managed and designed Chevron is a few miles from home.

My turbo 1.4 VW fuel efficiency generally - not always - puts a smile on my face.

The folks at the Chevron ALWAYS have clean - fresh window washing gear at hand.

They also have clean restrooms.

I like the owner.

That's my take - over a long observation period!
